It is now Day 6 which is Day 4 post-wounding. Despite my best efforts at wounding the scalp 4 days ago, there doesn’t seem to be much damage. There are areas here and there that are beginning to scab but I think it looked worse last time I did it. It’s almost as if my scalp has become resilient to damage. Another noted effect is the absence of scalp oils which I also recall from the previous time. Tannic acid has astringent properties so some of this can be attributed to that. No signs of regrowth of the existing hair yet, which is to be expected after depilation. Some vellus hair here and there which I probably didn’t catch with the waxing. According to the patent, hair germs will not occur for another 8 or 9 days and hair will not be spotted until probably a week after that. And of course, the depilation will have temporarily taken care of existing hair.
I began taking a 50mg tablet of roxythromycin orally yesterday. I figure that because it’s a very safe drug and cheap, it can’t do any harm to ingest this on a daily basis during ‘the window’. Hopefully, it will discourage my immune system from taking too much of an interest in the scalp damage.
As always, I’ll keep you updated.
